Kirwan, Chancellor of the University System of Maryland will be on the USU campus Wednesday and Thursday by invitation of USU President Stan Albrecht. Kirwan will address the university community on the current and changing role of the public research university in the United States and will speak to smaller audiences on the need to restore economic and academic balance to intercollegiate athletics.
